I never tire of watching our CNC router magically turn blank Precision Board into a work of art. Whenever my dad visits he goes straight to the router room and watches it too. He's never owned a computer and simply can't comprehend how the machine knows where to go. It's just magic!
The CNC was busy today turning out the last of the pieces for the excavator sign. As soon as the router moved on to the last piece I pulled the first sign face off the table and fastened it to the base. It looked pretty cool - just as I imagined it would. The hydraulic cylinders and hoses have yet to be fashioned and the pile of gravel will yet get some detail but the sign is coming along nicely. It's hand work from here on in.
I'll post more pictures of our progress when I get back to the project after I return from the EnRoute workshop in Denver.
